Ladies and gentlemen, it is official. I am a graduate from a master's program in counseling with a speciality in MFT. I would like to thank God first and foremost for this amazing opportunity. The fact that I will be able to help people with things they are struggling with or wanting to work on is something I always wanted to do. Additionally, I would like to thank the professors at CSUF. In addition, I would like to thank my cohort for being there for me personally and professionally. I would like to thank my family and friends for being supportive during my journey. Lastly, I would like to thank my mother for always being there for me through my ups and downs. You always have the right things to keep me on track in life. #CSUF#CSUF2017#TitanPride#MFT#Counseling#Counselor#Therapist 👨🏻🎓🎓📜🐘
Yesterday my colleague @_karlarebeca and I were asked to be part of the Allied Health program (AH). The AH Academy aims to increase the pipeline of underrepresented students into allied and other health career professions by supporting students through high school, community college, university, and graduate school. We do this by providing services and resources at each level through our partner organizations.

I just completed my #thesis 📒. Finishing this thesis and this master's program has been an amazing opportunity personally and professionally. My top 3 take aways are:
1. Self-care- I love to walk my dogs 30 minutes a day. This helps me to stay in the present moment. 2. Delayed gratification- To do this with love, rather than rushing through things. Life is a marathon, not a 100 years dash. 3. Empathy- This is to understand someone with compassion and understanding. #CSUF
